Note: 
A haunting work by the author of Gentlehands, this historical novel explores complex relationships between Germans and Americans prior to World War II and between Jews and Gentiles. It begins in 1934 in a small town in New York and features two teenage girls, Jessie and Elisa, and a young prisoner. In time, Elisa, the German girl, moves back to Germany and her correspondence with Jessie forms the latter part of the novel. A coming-of-age story that explores issues of racism, class, and patriotism through an impressive mix of character and plot.
